I thought nursing was going to be stressful, dealing with the college accountings is more stressful.
I think taking online class during a pandemic was the safest thing that could happen which I'm happy about. But the weekly assignments and non stop homework took a big mental toll on my life.
I barely learned anything online. The first semester I had problems because of how confusing it was for everyone. The second semester was better because the professors knew how to do it.
I did dual enrollment here. I will have to say, the office staff is absolutely horrible. I'd recommend applying as early as possible. If you call them you will be put on hold with awful music for about 30-45 minutes, and the rude staff will tell you "we'll get to it" and they never do. You almost have to be a Karen to get them to do things. Academics were ok. Campus sucked, but it's a commuter campus so you know what you're getting in to. Do dual enrollment or stay a year or 2 but don't stay all 4 years. Campus is put on lockdown a couple of times a semester when there's an armed robbery at the Walmart. Traffic is terrible in the mornings. You'll leave very early and sit in your car in the parking lot for 30 minutes before your class. Parking is terrible, nobody knows how to park, and some of the lots are dirt. The lots are also kind of far away from classrooms.
Housing is full of students that use drugs . The academics are great but are negatively effected by the students lack of class .
The majority of the faculty held contempt for the students and never wanted to help when students asked. Once I asked my teacher if she could go over a quiz with me and she responded that she had a second job and she didn't have time for me. Also, most of the online resources and books malfunction on a weekly basis, making it difficult to complete my homework.
First two years attending this college was amazing as a college student experience the college life. However as I attended for 3 more years, the college campus became overcrowded and the college system such as paying for its listed fees were unnecessary and unhelpful in pursuing my college degree. Parking is a nightmare. The infrastructure is always under construction since its next to a main highway. There is a scarcity in professors that actually have time to teach the material and to provide effective feedback. There are not even enough electives or courses to provide to the students. Although this college has its negatives, its best features are: its small class count for professors to engage with the students more effectively than a huge auditorium; its diversity in the students and professors; and the local area of the city for socializing.
We really don't have this at my campus so it's kind of hard to decipher
It is very difficult to try to get all the necessary classes, specially for freshmen and sophomores. The registration process is fairly easy. The downside of the study areas is that people will take up the rooms to watch Netflix or play games on their electronics.
My college doesn't have them.
they take forever to do things and the processes wasn't very clear, they have terrible communication
It is pretty dry, but there are some occasionally.
you can get in trouble for listenng to music
there arent alot of choices limited menu
there is nothing to do but stay in your room or go home for the weekends
The campus is strict if you don't know who to know. I would suggest getting friendly with SGA members and finding out information if possible. As a fairly upright student, didn't effect me but I know a lot of people got busted for doing really dumb things.
Good luck! The communication is atrocious and after you graduate, you still receive mail about signing up for the next year.
